talked a long time ago for a "for a magazine" story. one of the things that you said is that commerce, in an of itself, is not the enemy. it is the backbone of civilization. >> to be against commerce is to be against your clothing. who would be against commerce? we just said we are living in a world that has been overly come modified. where everything has been turned into a commodity value. people do not have the identities. we are world full of brands and no identity. you can read your entire life -- you can do your business and go about in the world using your credit card and never really look anyone in the eye. a world in which things have been comodified, things that should never have been. you cannot put a price on love. you cannot put a price on things that make life meaningful. but this isn't a consumer culture. even though we know we cannot keep it up. if the chinese adopt our lifestyle, we are all goners, we know that. it is not the third world anymore, it is the developing world. well, they are developing and they want things, too. the 21st century will be about competing fo
>> commerce, education, and the -- what's the third one there? oops. >> tonight we take you behind the scenes. >> see if they can do this flash. >> we'll show you what they don't like to talk about. >> so lying is okay in politics? >> what's behind winning the presidency? ♪ >> when it to say winning the presidency, i'd like to think that the choices about whose ideas are better, but when you talk to people behind the scenes they talk about moments. >> there are a series of moments. that's what matters. >> remember the scream? howard dean led john kerry in early polls, but then after a loss he tried to rally the troops. >> we're going to california, and texas, and new york! >> the room was noisy. and people in the room said, this sounded like a normal rally. >> and then we're going to washington, d.c. to take back the white house! yay! >> but because dean's microphone picked up only dean's voice, the tv broadcast made him sound crazy. >> yay! >> that unfairly may have killed his campaign. even images can matter more than issues. this video is said to have hurt john kerry. this is
, but now it's taken a step toward capturing some e- commerce. it launched a new service for users to buy and send real gifts called facebook gifts. the presents are from certain vendors, purchased through facebook. shares rallied 6.6%. volume was heavier than usual. while display advertising remains facebook's main source of revenue and the company has been focused on its mobile strategy, analysts say this new e-commerce feature could help diversify facebook's revenue sources. drugstore giant walgreen saw its latest quarterly profits fall from a year ago, hurt by it losing the prescription business of express scripts. same store prescription sales got hit, falling almost 13%. it has since resigned express scripts as a pharmacy benefits customer. shares only moved a fraction, but volume was heavy and the stock hit a new 52 week high during the trading session. four of the five most active traded exchange traded products were lower. the s&p 500 volatility note, which usually moves in the opposite director of the index was up 3.1%. and that's tonight's market focus. >> tom: the good times f
away with the education -- the -- >> commerce. >> the commerce and let's see -- oops. >> yes, how has the national debt personally affected each of your lives? >> there you go again. >> i have had a record of informing judges in the state of texas that's what the governor gets to do. >> cenk: how want can a debate be if the most important guy that we remember was a guy checking his watch. the rick perry oops moment that one was good. and the famous sigh. that's why he lost the debate right? wrong. he won 48 to 41 in that first debate. and the sigh debate was the first up with where the american people believed that al gore won. but the media said no he lost. he lost. he lost because he sighed. shockingly enough george bush won a debate. the third up with he lost again. so gore won two out of the three debates, and the entire media painted it as if because of expectations, in fact george bush had won. not true. when you ask the american people they said gore won two out of three. and how did bush do against kerry? republicans say this democrats say that. oh hell no. j
a still sluggish recovery. the commerce department revised its estimate of second-quarter economic growth down yesterday from 1.7%. mitt romney seized on the change in springfield, virginia. >> we are at 1.3%. this is... this is unacceptable. >> woodruff: other economic indicators also paint a mixed picture. the stock market itself, while down today, has been climbing in recent weeks to its highest levels in nearly five years. today, the dow jones industrial average lost almost 49 points after a weak manufacturing report and worries over europe to close just over 13,437. and the housing market may be stabilizing. a key index showed home prices rose in july to the highest level in almost two years, pointing to a recovery there. consumer spending was also up last month, but it was largely to pay for higher gasoline prices. for a closer look at all this with two people who follow these matters closely, we turn to kenneth rogoff, a professor of economics and public policy at harvard university, and co- author of "this time, it's different: eight centuries of financial folly"; and muhamed el-e
an alliance with the business community. one of the biggest champions is that california chamber of commerce. we know it is good for business. and please, organized with the neighborhood bars. there are so many great neighborhood bars in this city that could add that neighborhood element to political organizing. and when you are a district supervisor, it is one thing to have nightclub owners come to you. it is another thing to have neighborhood business owners like bar owners coming to you. we need to organize as a bar owner and that will move us in a positive direction. i am optimistic about the future of night life in this city. i think we have turned a corner. there's a broader and broader consensus that this matters for the broader culture of san francisco. thank you. [applause] for many years, the entertainment commission -- >> for many years, the entertainment commission, which has been under the auspices of the city was guided by ed lee. he is now the mayor san francisco. he was going to be here today, but was called away. but he sent paul anderson to deliver a message. [applause] >>
health, public safety, commerce. so we need to be looking with a vision for the future about what we want our city to be. and i think i have done that before and like i said, i'm for prevention. and i'm for looking to the future and figuring out how we can sculpt a better san francisco and that is what i will do as supervisor. thank you, mr. davis. i want to remind folks and point out that we have seen a disturbing trend in san francisco over the past couple ever years. of years. we have had a lot of leadership appointed for us. an appointed mayor, appointed district attorney when our leaders are chosen for us instead of by us. if you want leadership in our city, i'll i'm your candidate. at juliandavis.org, there is more detail about the grassroots campaign we're building. i encourage you to look where the candidates are getting their money from. i think it says a lot about whose interests they will be representing. thank you. >> anybody else? miss olague? >> again, i just wanted to welcome all of you to the office, room 256 of city hall and we are engaging with neighbors all the
to regulate bpa. bpa is protected by its use in interstate commerce, making it difficult for the fda to restrict use. >> there is a lot of push-back from the chemical industry from the companies that are making these products that are convinced that they're safe at the levels that humans are exposed to, and they have their influence within government bodies, as much as do scientists or perhaps more have their influence. so a lot of different things need to be evaluated and weighed in making decisions and that's what has slowed processes down. >> while the fda has stalled action at the federal level, statand local governments as well as regulators in other nations have banned it. >> 11 states have passed legislation restricting the use of bpa. and in virtually all of those states, there are additional attempts being made to further restrict bpa in essentially all kinds of food contact uses. canada has declared bisphenyl a a toxic chemical. it's restricted for use in china, some countries in south america, around the world. >> in science, nothing is black and white, cut everything fall
. that is what i call the technology chamber of commerce and we have over 300 companies now that are members. they are helping us figure out how to make sure that the companies are here, comfortably, but also how we train the new workforce to continue this fantastic growth in employment with the technology companies. >> and these companies are paying? >> oh, yes. >> who are the most helpful companies that you have found here? >> oh, gosh, there are so many of them. i was, for example, jawbone is one of the members and they stepped up along with all the members, all the major members of city this summer to help me create over 5,000 jobs for kids. >> child labor? >> no, summer-pay internships. >> not like 6 years old building iphones. >> these were high school and college graduates, but they are all looking for jobs and they want to be exposed to this wonderful world of technology. so they picked them up and a lot of that target was for disadvantaged kids in our city. >> that is great. >> and now these kids who came through these summer jobs, they are thinking about their future and
, they will be ending in the next couple of hours. so weekend okay. not chamber of commerce. but certainly okay. saturday better than sunday. no doubt about that. a little more sunshine on saturday. cooler but average. we've been sort of spoiled with the 80s wednesday, thursday, friday. we're going to go back in the low to mid 70s which is pretty much average for this time of year. and then sunday a little unsettled but primarily only in the afternoon and evening hours. so the bulk of sunday will also be okay. tonight then showers and storms ending. partial clearing. cooler. lows 54-62. winds out of the north at 5-10. a little patchy fog possible south of town where we had the showers as well. thus returning partly sunny tomorrow morning. cool. you'll need your sunglasses eventually. temps in the 50s and 60s. winds out of the north at 10. and then by afternoon, partly sunny, cooler. lower temps a little bit. back in the low 70s. nothing dramatic with winds out of the northeast at about 10. still a pretty nice day. next three days, we're going to keep it code green. partly cloudy tomorrow. coole
. lonely, there was a career fair focusing on veterans put on by the u.s. chamber of commerce and we made sure that we were there. this from the experience, i know that veterans tend to do well in our careers. usually it is just a matter of letting them know all the different opportunities that are out there. giving us a chance to get them into our interviewing process. neil: i know you remind folks given the discipline and organization of the veterans in general, that they are of interest to employers because they are very loyal. for another thing, they worked their butts off. is that message getting through? >> i think that it is. i think in our career, especially having daily disciplines, it serves them very well and the financial services field. they have a sense of service. they join the military to protect the country and they serve the nation. now, in our field, they really serve our communities. one family, one business at a time. we find that just that reliability, that discipline, that willingness to serve others, it always serves them really well and serves our policy is part o
the commerce department and what it showed was that the median price of a newly constructed home is at $257,000. that's a jump up 11% from july to august. now, a few reasons for these higher prices. less of a supply of homes on the market and that means more people are going after fewer properties. plus, mortgage rates are at record lows. that's a real good incentive to get people out there to buy. also, an increasing number of buyers. they just haven't been able to find previously owned homes that they like, they are opting to go brand-new and those are traditionally more expensive. victor? >> good news for the housing market. what impact did this have on the overall economic outlook? >> no doubt about it. housing is really a critical component and manufacturing is what pulled us out of the recession and economists, they want to see them pass the baton. that's really important for consumer spending because when people feel like their home is worth more, they feel wealthier and they tend to spend more and that's something our economy needs. a direct correlation with the job's market. people
, the commerce department says that people are spending more and that's good news. and many of us are spending more at the gas pump. because of the higher gas prices, people are selling out more to fill our cars and what does it mean for our economy? jonathan hoenig from capitalist pig hedge fund and cashin' in. >> great to be with you. >> kelly: a mixed bag, on one hand the consumer spent more in august, but most went to pay gas prices a he we talked about and apparently the americans are not spending as much, what concerns about saving more and spending less. >> spending, consumption itself is not inherently a good sign. keep in mind, that was the justification for the stimulus that we spent. we want people spending more, that's gone down the drain. in actuality, consumption is the end of the productive cycle, the wealth is consumed and there's no more of it. we should be looking for any growth in the economy is some signs of production. people making more investments and hiring and that worries me, is that the long-term economic indicator. i'm not a hater. i want positive signs in the econ
, information, in what direction and it continues. it is this same debate. you can talk about the commerce clause and equal protection of due process. it is all the same debate and it is an appropriate debate and hit is one that i would wish would sort of try to reach the same high-level that we saw in philadelphia that we are going to see at other points in the ratification process. sort of defense and arguments. who sits at home and drafts arguments that you see letters? you don't have a staff do these things. these are people who were engaged and also -- these were not scholars. these were not people who appropriated to themselves licenses to interpret or talk about this. these were foreigners. some of them who had formal education and some did not but they cared about this country. i think that i go back to your point. you talk about the written and the unwritten constitution. the unwritten constitution is sort of trying to to bring current events and problems and development and that debate continues on each one of them and that is why you see different points. that is why arguments -
bonsignore uncommitted work as the eye of cheapest form of commerce, work and advice. >> lloyd it's great to have you here, very candid and upfront discussion and a great round of applause for our guest of honor. [applause] >> thank you. >> my opponent and his running mate are big believers in top-down economics. now they basically think of way to spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that favor the very wealthy -- don't boo, vote. [cheers and applause] >> he's got new idea. one thing he did not do in his first four years, he said he is going to do in the next four years which is to raise taxes. is there anybody who thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy? no, his plan is to continue what he is done before. the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama and we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. we talked to cnbc host maria bartiromo about wall street's view of the economy. this is 50 minutes. >> host: joining us from our new york studio is a familiar face to anyone who is turned on cnbc, maria bartiromo who is the anchor of
trade commission, when the department of commerce, when the white house, when the congress stands up, when we all stand up it makes a huge difference and the relationship will settle in in a way a bit more advantageous to the united states of america and to our manufacturing companies, the smaller ones especially, and the workers in this country. >> that's in some ways what you're saying, joe. it sounds like whatever is happening, it's working in terms of the appreciation of the chinese currency. quickly, ro. >> but i don't think it's let china appreciate the currency to the extent they want. it's having them have an exchange rate that's to the market and let's not forget, this is hurting people in china. it's hurting the consumers there at the expense of elite exporters. so if you care about human rights, if you care about being progressive, you ought to care about the chinese currency. >> i guess a real quick point. the brazilian finance minister this week attacked our federal reserve for decreasing the value of the dollar and he used this term currency wars which everyone has glom
for them. that's because the u.s. department of commerce said it might end a 16-year-old deal with mexico. great news for farmers in florida who compete with the growers of mexican tomatoes, but means the cost of tomatoes could spike at big retailers like walmart. >> he was pope benedict's personal and trusted butler. now he's on trial for stealing personal papers from the pope's apartment. we'll have details from rome. i'm so glad you called. thank you. we're not in london, are we? no. why? apparently my debit card is. what? i know. don't worry, we have cancelled your old card. great. thank you. in addition to us monitoring your accounts for unusual activity, you could also set up free account alerts. okay.

't happen. that could be devastating. bankruptcy also go through the roof. i believe because the commerce finance committee did it. we're probably going to get it done probably next 30, 60 days before election day it will happen. thank you. please, what your name? >> barbara. >> okay, barbara, how can i help you? >> if you have an investment property, and you are going to have to go bankrupt because of the investment property, but you have your kids' college money sitting in the bank, is the college money protected? >> well, you know, that's interesting. because that's more of an asset protection type of issue but essentially what she is saying is i think it's going to depend on how the money is set up. for example, if you have it set up in certain kind of funds and protection which is one of the things we talked about is asset protection. tax lawyers and people do asset protection can have the funds set up in i think that could be exempt where they can't go after it because essentially it's money put away but it can be protected in certain fashion. if the money is just sitting there in a
money for these things, fine. we are not against commerce. in essence, when they do that, we see that as a gift to others. they are giving that to other people. they are dressing up the landscape. they are certainly not staying in their tent. but there is that notion. there have been fashion spreads in some magazines about that burner look. and but you will not see me in fluffy leggings. [laughter] that is fine for anyone that prefers them. i do not know. there are just a lot of people that do pay a lot of attention. i am one of them. i suppose, if you wanted to have that special, that look, you could spend a lot of money on it. >> i was going to ask you this, final question, but he may have answered it. what is your 60-second the idea to change the world? it sounds like it is get to the right gear. >> yeah. if you can just get the right gear, you can -- change the world? >> not change it in 60 seconds. >> i don't know. >> say how to change it. >> i don't know. >> for the better. >> just connect. just connect. >> all right. you have 54 seconds left. >> fluffy leggings. >> all rig
